Hi,
Is there anyway to set the deadline for a WU at load time. The default is 10 days but what if I wanted to set this to 2 (or some other value)? Do I have to manually do this in the DB?

Cheers
Seth

I don't know what you mean by load time but deadlines are set when tasks are created on the server. You can control this with the delay_bound attribute specified in your input template or via commandline. See: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/JobIn

Hi Christian,
Sorry I should have been more specific. I meant how can I control the deadline when I create the work unit. I'm using the create_work binary supplied with BOINC so just guess I add --delay_bound argument with a value in seconds?

Cheers

correct, add this line with values in seconds:

<delay_bound>xxx</delay_bound>
